Why Cite Correctly?
- To give credit for work used.
- To provide users of your work access to related useful sources.
- To provide authority to your assertions
The following are recommendations for citing various publication types. The recommendations are based on the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors - Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts and the American Psychological Association Manual, 6th ed. There are many different manuals of style and various publications have different requirements for references. You can find manuals of style in the library in the Reference area on the second floor in the WZ 345 section.
WebCite® is an archiving system for cited web pages and web sites. It ensures that cited web material will remain available to readers in the future. Using this system creates a permanent copy of the web page that can be retrieved at a later date, regardless of whether the web page has been changed or removed.
